Scientists say the massive oil spill near Kirtland Air Force Base is not contaminating Albuquerque wells.

The center for disease control and prevention says Albuquerque’s drinking water supply shows it is clear of any fuel.

The massive jet fuel spill that began back in the 1950’s was believed to be threatening the water supply.

The Albuquerque Journal reports the CDC team released results from their study to local water protection officials on Friday.

A public meeting is scheduled later this month to present the findings.
